The Iwi Leaders Forum has come under fire from one of the newest members of the New Zealand Māori Council.

The Council is also holding a meeting at Waitangi to update members on last week's water case hearing.

John Tamihere from Te Whanau ō Waipareira says he joined because urban Māori are getting thirsty waiting for resources to trickle down from the iwi leaders.

“The Māori Council has teeth and the Iwi Leaders Forum have money and influence. The question is what are they doing with it? If it wasn’t for the New Zealand Māori Council having a go about the water - guess what, they would all be lining up now for buying back an asset we already own with our own compensation money”. says Tamihere.

Congratulations Tainui
WILLIE JACKSON OPINION: The 20th anniversary of the Tainui Settlement was a great occasion for all New Zealanders - Maori and Pakeha alike.
Maori miss out
WILLIE JACKSON: It was a good week for the red necks with the vote going against the New Plymouth Mayor who was pushing for a Maori ward as part of the council, and the naming of the high-levelled panel to review Child Youth and Family that contained not one so called Maori expert.
Locking Maori up in Prison.
MARTYN BRADBURY OPINION: The UN are concerned. They are concerned by New Zealand's appalling incarceration rates for Maori. At 15% of the population, Maori make up over 50% of the prison population. It's a situation the UN Committee of Torture describes as 'worrying'.
